Lauren and Shane still struggle to move past their opposing beliefs about war, politics, and faith. Shane believes it's possible; Lauren doesn't. So she says a painful good-bye to her long-ago love and returns to her job as a war correspondent in Afghanistan. Both Lauren and Shane are shattered, believing that this time their relationship may have ended forever.
Then tragedy sends shockwaves through all their lives. Can Lauren and Shane set aside their opposing views so that love, God's love, might win, no matter how great the odds?

This book is a very moving story about love and war. I have read all of Karen Kingsbury 's books and enjoyed them all.
"Not up to Kingsbury's quality"
I love Karen Kingsbury's books and have read them all. Ever After was a real disappointment. To begin with, the reader is terrible. She tries to sound like a man for the male characters and the farther into the book you go, the more grating it becomes. And listening to the book made me feel like I was in a giant advertisement for the Iraq war. Karen - please go back to what you do best - writing about wonderful characters with great stories and leave the lobbying to the politicans.
"Enjoyed this very much"
I was surprised by the events in this book. But, I was thrilled by the final outcome.
Even Now and Ever After are two wonderfully written books and I have been moved with all the emotions possible as I read them!
Story was well written and all the dots were connected. I would love a follow up story for Emily and Joe
"#outdated war propagandist"
I didn't read the first book so this may not be fair but I felt no concern over Lauren and Shane or whether they stayed togethwr. it seemed silly that the entire relationship would hinge on her reporting of the war. But disturbing that the author would portray time magazine as biased and in fact untruthful in reporting of the war. rarely does a news magazine report on a kitten rescued from a tree during war rather than the war itself. but I've seen moving stories on war dogs and their military owners and stories of heroism from this same press. shame on the author for such biased and unresearched writing. I was shocked after reading Angels Walking which I loved.
Very good, but be prepared to cry. I cried 75%of this book.
"Enjoyable and thoughful"
A great story about choices and forgiveness. Great choice for a teenager and for parents of a teen. I will remember this one when my daughter is about the age where she may be getting serious with a boy.
"I cleared my tear ducts now!"
What an amazing story, with real struggles many people have, and temptations. And how important it is to keep Jesus as the absolute centre of every area of your life!
"Great Story, fast reading"
I liked the story and I liked how the reader incorporated different effects. For examnple, if the person was on the phone, it sounded like it. The only thing was that she read so fast with very few stops for effect. It jump from one thought to another and was hard to have my mind keep up.
